Scrap Fabric Christmas Banner

Christmas decorating
has begun at our house and it started with my window ledge mantel!!

We spent Thanksgiving in L.A. (lower Alabama) with III’s family, but headed back this way in time to begin decking the halls before the real world called again. It’s hard to explain my excitement as III brought box after box down from the attic. One might say it was like a kid on Christmas morning.
And of course, I couldn’t resist diving into my first project of the holidays!!

Tutorial Here

It’s pretty simple really…cut strips…tie to string…stand back and admire your handiwork.

My house is in a little bit of disarray right now. Those boxes haven’t made their way back to the attic, but I’m okay with that. We have our feet up by the fire and the stockings have been hung.

For now that is enough. Tomorrow, however, tomorrow we are off to get our tree!!

Sharing with these fabulous ladies!!
